Reviews

9.7 Rocklee Ltd has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.706)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Rocklee Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 27 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rocklee Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.706 for Rocklee Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (239 Excellents x 5) + (73 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 323 Ratings = 4.706

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rocklee Ltd is based on 13 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 2.2 positive Reviews (11 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 2.2 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Now the spring is here I go out more. I do not go on holiday which is my wish but I do go to the library and visit my family whilst the other residents are away. The staff at Rocklee are very helpful. I help myself to be clean and healthy. We have new staff. 2 or 3 may be going but they are very friendly and helpful. I have my voting papers so I am going to vote this year. The garden is looking better now we have flowers here and there.

I went to have my feet done with a member of staff. I had a pedicure and my feet felt wonderful. It was nice to go round town with my key worker and I am doing things I hadn't for years and it was nice to do something I won't do for a long time. My life has changed since I moved to Rocklee Ltd. I look forward to going to the gym.

Our recent review, as always was conducted with compassion, consideration and professionally considering our son's needs and progress with empathy. We have nothing but praise for all the staff. Our son's progress is discussed and ways to help and support his recent problems discussed in a professional and understanding manner. He is treated as part of a big family with respect and understanding we do not know how we would have managed without them. As a family, it has given us peace of mind and knowing we have made the right decision at a very difficult time.

I have just returned from a holiday with my sister and the residents, we had a great time on the beach collecting shells, playing games and paddling in the sea. We also went and played ten pin bowling, crazy golf and we also went on a day trip to Fantasy Island where we went shopping. We all had a great time together.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your holiday and I'm pleased you could enjoy it with your sister.

My husband died a few years ago and I always feel down towards his anniversary, I am at my sisters at least 2-3 times a week, the manager has been there for me to talk to. Everyone at Rocklee was going on holiday the week of his anniversary, they invited me to go along with them. I had a great time with everyone, we went paddling in the sea, dancing on the night-time with the residents. We all had a brilliant time, and I have always felt like part of the family even more.

Harry Coates

Job Title: Care Suport Worker

Joined: 2016

Description:

I came to Rocklee on a 12 week work experience placement for my college course, and from the day I started, I was made welcome by staff and the residents and really felt like part of the team.
I gained experience and training over the 12 weeks of placement and gained support when finding a second placement in a similar environment and was sad to leave.
I was soon offered a part time job opportunity working weekends. Since starting I have gained even more experience in recognising mental health, and training on such matters like safeguarding, depression, medication, first aid etc which I can use to help me further my career. I have since gained a greater knowledge in mental health, and changed my career paths, knowing this is the type of job I would like to go into and to help provide others with a better quality of life.

when I left high school I joined Collage to do vehicular Mechanics but that wasn't for me so I had completed my first year to gain my qualification and joined an agency since I was looking for work and did not know what do during my time there I was given three jobs, packing medical equipment, making sanding blocks and loading and unloading containers after several months they had stopped phoning for work and I had to join job seekers where they gave me work experience in a local shop, However the shop manager was unprofessional and I had left of my own accord, later I found a job in a chip shop where I was doing well until I had moved, After a month I had found a training academy, where they helped me obtain my level two in English and an apprenticeship in my health and social care.

I uphold the certain values such as equal rights, e.g. race, gender or sexual orientation and I know this is the path for me.

I have had an interest in this area of work since I have started.

Joined: 2015

Description:

I have been in care work for 4 years, I decided to change my career role, due to finding myself, using health support services, and I decided what a valuable and satisfying role this is, to support people in care.

Since I took the role, I have worked in 3 different sectors of Health and Social Care, and have obtained, various knowledge, I have done 75% of my experience has been covered via dementia care, and after I undertook training, I realised that dementia can even affect people under the age of 50, so I took the job on at Rocklee, as it fitted my aims, of what I wanted to learn and support. I have come across different conditions, within this client group, of which I have found interesting, as I want to share my experiences.

Since been at Rocklee, I have completed, new awards that is extending my personal development profile. I have just completed Common Health Conditions, which has explored dementia and arthritic conditions, of which I have found very valuable.

This is leading me now, to a different pathway of learning knowledge, as I have just engaged, on NVQ award in Mental Health.

On a positive note, I have found a role, that fits in with my personal life, which is another bonus of reward.
